This year one of our personal goals for An Organised Life is to provide you with the tools and information you need to live your best life! Not only through our products, but through our content, interviews, imagery and downloadables.
Over the last few weeks, our Founder has been working on a very thorough and organised (of course!) plan for the year. Each month in 2018 we will be focusing on a core topic e.g productivity, decluttering, health and well-being, etc. From there we will be providing you with all the tips, tools and information you need to help improve this part of your life.
So, to get things started - February is all about falling in love with your life.
From finding your purpose and manifesting success, to writing goals for your future and providing you with tips to help organise your daily routine. We want you to really embrace February as your month of looking at what you want and planning how to make those positive changes to allow those dreams to become a reality.
What’s the story of your life so far? How do you want to be remembered? and What is your purpose in life? Answering these questions (& a few more) will help you to create a solid foundation for your future. Defining your purpose and identifying your skills and passions is a powerful tool that really allows you to start ticking off those big goals and dreams. Purpose creates meaning and this brings with it motivation and inspiration, allowing you to live a fulfilled and meaningful life.
FINDING YOUR PURPOSE:
There is no magic formula to finding out what your purpose is in life however below are some questions that will help you to discover your answer. Often, we know our goals and dreams for the future, however we don’t know our exact purpose. Sometimes we are driven by money, power, or status - and before we know it we end up on a path that doesn’t align with our skills, passions and core values. You only live once, and it’s important to stay true to who you are so you can live a fulfilled and happy life.
Allocate some time this week to answering the questions below. Once you have answered them, analyse your responses and write down what your purpose is for your life in a few short and to the point sentences.
E.g My purpose in life is to live each day to the fullest and to make the most of every opportunity. I want to be remembered for being a hard working, positive, and loving person who helps others to be more organised. I want to live a balanced life with love, family and stability.
From there you can start making actionable goals (keep an eye out next week for our blog post on this), but for now… read and answer the questions below.
- Define your top 3-5 values in life e.g happiness, loyalty, wealth, power, wisdom, family, integrity, kindness, etc
- What do you want to achieve in your life?
- How do you want to be remembered? or What difference do you want to make to this world?
- What makes you feel motivated, inspired and really excited about life?
- When are you your best self?
- Who makes you happy?
- What are your best skills and strengths?
- What skills do you wish you could use everyday?
Now you have answered these questions, grab your diary and remember to write down what your purpose is for your life in a few short and to the point sentences.
It’s important that your purpose is driven from what you want out of your life, not what someone else is pushing you towards. Don’t compare your life with others. Everyone has a different journey.
